Annotation

Satire on Adelaide and its inhabitants. In the “Foreword” the author writes, “Adelaide has crushed my youthful ambitions, and, possibly, narrowed my ideas–and you, her people, have done your best (by force of example), and other methods) to root out any broad or human sentiment that was in me” ([5]), but in an undated “Preface to the II., III., IV., V., VI., and VII Editions” on the next page she says she had no malicious intent. There is no evidence of such editions. See also her 1905 The Arcadians.  Mrs. F. Ellis responded in A Scratch from an Adelaide Cat in vindication of Adelaide and its people. Adelaide, SA, Australia: G. Hassell & Co., 1905 (M).
